Perhaps Ma Bell put that cover on it, a refurb job.

It's still got the shroom thing and may still command a price.

WOW!!!! :o :o  It ended @ over $700.00!  I bought a white U last year that had basically the same treatment as this pink one & thought I got rooked at $155.00(with no disclosure or enlightening pics.).  This one puts a whole new perspective on that purchase.

That's pretty crazy!  I guess one never knows what will happen on eBay.  That seller is going on vacation now!

That is crazy!!!  :o :o :o While it's a very nice phone, $700 could get you probably 50 standard c/d 500s. Maybe it was someone on the forum or the listserv that sold it.

Shocked I am!  (as Yoda would say it)

Still, it's all about the right moment on e-bay eh?

McHeath....so true about the moment on eBay. Next week it might not have seen $100. When you get two people who must have it, its good to be a seller.....Doug
